Machinedrum MK1 x OT

I’ve been plotting on a Machinedrum for a while now.

I had a sonic potions lxr and really liked the sound and I imagine a Machinedrum would be similar.

I plan on sequencing the MD with the OT to make use of conditional trigs and micro timing.

My main question is, what would I be missing out on by getting a MK1 vs an MK2.

From my understanding the MK2’s have longer pattern lengths? And I’m imagining since I’m sequencing it with the OT it shouldn’t matter.

I also know I won’t be able to sample but I could use a couple OT tracks to layer some sample based percussion if needed.

Also curious if big boomy 808 trap sounding kicks are possible with the MD?

You can read a full list of the differences in the MD manual available on Elektron’s website.

Yes. Check some MD examples in videos etc to hear examples of this kind of thing.

I’m mainly trying to find people who have used it with the octatrack and what their experience was like with it.

There’s plenty of experience for you to read:
